Huh...I would totally hit it. The headline speaks truth.

Said hottie is surprisingly attractive for a woman in a British publication whom subby called a "hottie".

Or is it just "smoking hot" that foretells great need of eye-bleach?
 
2014-04-28 06:46:02 AM  
It was probably just poop-weight.

I was surprised too. Normally headlines like this reveal some giant lady shaped like a stack of pancakes or maybe some sort of red haired ocelot or something.


But my love of redheads overpowered my caution, and it paid off.

I love vegetables, but kale tastes like evil.  I don't understand how anyone can willingly eat it.

Do people not know that you can swing 5 pounds in 24 hours? Weigh yourself at night after eating a hearty meal, then the following morning after a healthy dump and you will probably see close to a 5 pound difference.

That, and it was low-carb. She probably also lost water weight.

Honestly, if your stomach is "gurgling" and you can't stray to far from a bathroom, I think that means you are not eating right.

Um...if you're pooping out the weight of over half a gallon of milk in one sitting, I'm thinking there could be GI problems.

I dropped 6lbs last week by eating less/more often. Where's my Sun article?

You aren't pooping out that much, but when you factor in water loss and other such things, a close to 5 pound swing is not that abnormal. I generally have a 3-5 weight swing in a 24 hour period. The only reason I know this was because when I was losing weight (was able to drop 75 lbs in a 2 year period) I would weigh myself morning and night and split the difference to get my actual weight.
 
2014-04-28 07:06:23 AM  
Nothing wrong with kale, per se. But a kale diet is just wrong.

My wife has been growing this stuff. Nobody here eats it. Even the chickens won't touch it. I've seen our chickens eat maggots crawling in manure. That pretty much sums up kale.
Anyway dinner's almost ready. Something with eggs I hope.

These.

When you first start on just about any healthy diet you see the weight fly off,  it's water.

Three step process for losing weight:

1. Eat better quality food, that you make yourself.  It tastes better, and is more satisfying, more fulfilling, and as a result, more filling.  You find yourself eating less food, less often, which leads to weight loss.  You can still eat junk sometimes- total abstinence generally doesn't work, but as you eat more better food, you tend to find you want junk less and less.

2.  Exercise.  This doesn't mean kill yourself at the gym twice a week for a month then stop, this means get up once or twice a day, and do some physical activity.  If you work sitting at a desk all day like I do, take your break and take a walk.  I don't smoke, so I talk a "walk break" once or twice a day, in place of "smoke breaks", and take the 5 minute walk around the outside of my building.

3. Be patient.  Healthy weight loss happens gradually, especially when you have a lot to lose.  Don't obsess over it, don't weigh yourself every day, just keep living healthier.  Also, don't worry if someone else is losing weight faster than you - especially couples losing weight together, as men and women lose weight / show weight loss differently (men tend to show loss sooner and continue to lose gradually, women tend to show later and lose larger amounts in intervals, which makes sense since women's physiology is cyclic in a different way (or at least on a bigger scale) than men's)

/eat kale if you like kale

It's cheap, too - with a supermarket bag costing just £1 -

It won't stay cheap if gets trendy. Marketers will find a way to get kale lovers to buy some sort of "premium kale" and charge five times more for it. That said, kale chips are pretty good when tossed in olive oil and pepper. And dipped in ranch dressing. And sprinkled with bacon bits. Wait, what were we talking about again?

You can use a blender (which retains the fibre) or a juicer (which blitzes the ingredients and removes bulk).
However, Gwyneth loves the uber-expensive Vitamix blender, so that's what I use, even if it costs £500.

Most of your weight loss is exhaled carbon dioxide.

I can lose four pounds by taking two good dumps in a day.

EngineerAU: It won't stay cheap if gets trendy


I like kale added to a standard lettuce salad for lunch.  It adds flavor and texture to the meal.  If it does get trendy, I don't see it staying trendy for long. Americans would rather suck down a big mac than enjoy a kale salad.

IMHO, the Wendy's girl makes a much more compelling case than the kale girl.

You should try kale on a burger instead of lettuce. Only way I'll eat kale.

Yup. Swap in fiber for BigMacs and you'll drop four lbs in two days.

I don't know - I hate salads and Costco sells a asian Kale Salad mix that is shockingly good.

I prefer kale as an ingredient in a smoothie more than on it's own.

I prefer a Baconator more than any form of Kale.

I prefer the Wendy's Baconator girl more than an actual Baconator.

I'm going to lose about 4lbs when I take my morning sabbatical. No way I'm subjecting myself to kale to create a similar result. .

Most of that weight was literally crap. Kale will clean out all the gummed up doody just clogging up your intestines.

This redhead you guys are fawning overust have dropped some epic grogans that first week.

4 pounds? that is nothing... so far I have lost over 26 in 2 months...


She lost 4 pounds in one week. You are losing ~3 pounds/week.

She's losing more than you, you losing loser.


Srsly, good on you but get your math together.
